And not. Most consistent driver of the season was Richard Burns, finishing on points in 11 events, 85 percent of events he started. The most unconsistent was Toni Gardemeister, who retired on half of the events he started. It was not all due to new Fabia, three of this retirements happened with old Octavia WRC.
Fastest driver
Markko Martin won most stages, 52 in total. This even though he drove old '02 Focus for three first events and was plagued by teething problems of '03 version later on. It is a clear indication of what Ford is capable of in 2004, if they continue with the championship.
Fastest team
Peugeot lost their bid for fourth consecutive manufacturers crown to Citroen but scored almost 50 percent more stage wins than their PSA stablemate. It is also interesting to note that almost all of Ford's stage wins were scored by Martin
Unlucky performer
It is interesting to note that Marcus Gronholm was clearly the single most likely driver to lead a rally, being rally leader in 77 out of 275 stages in 2003. That is more than twice the amount compared to eventual champion Solberg and underlines the importance of finishing.
